Timeline View

To set your animation timing, you will mostly work with the Timeline and Xsheet views. It is extremely useful to become familiar with the Timeline view, how it works, and its interface.

The Timeline view is the main view used when adjusting the timing of drawings, adding keyframes and ordering layers. The Timeline view displays layers, effects, sounds, keyframe values, scene length, layer names, drawings, keyframes, timing, and frames.

Timeline View

The Timeline view allows you to read your timing from left to right. It represents the scene’s elements in their simplest form. You can also see the layers and their names, as well as the drawing’s exposure. The drawing name is displayed when you place your pointer above the drawing’s exposure.

You can see the drawing name when you display the Data view. The name of the drawing folder to which the layer is linked is displayed in the Data view.
